Driving tips for you and your car hire in Perth
Perth is a great city to use as a base for exploring some of Western Australia’s best attractions. Whether you’re an Aussie or a first time visitor, it’s always good to know what to expect when driving in on new turf. Here are a few driving tips to keep you and your Perth rental car on the straight and narrow.
- Australia is a giant country, and driving to Perth from cities like Sydney or Melbourne could take up a sizable chunk of your trip! The most popular option for self-drive travellers is to fly into Perth Airport and pick up your hire car there. Then if you wish to travel other cities afterwards, just hop on an internal flight and book a new vehicle in your next destination.
- To drive in Western Australia you must have a valid driver’s license and carry it with you at all times when driving. If your license is written in any language other than English, make sure to translate it into English before picking up your vehicle.
- Parking in the centre of Perth is fairly expensive, and the time restrictions on your length of parking stay are shorter than many other cities. If you are planning on staying in an apartment or hotel in Perth, check whether your accommodation includes free parking, as this could make your life a lot easier! If you need to park elsewhere in the CBD for longer than a few hours, look for multi storey car parks as they come with less time restrictions.
